Human Rights Zone march to Inner Harbor:

Next Saturday April 18, 2009 will be an important day for Baltimore, the workers at the Inner Harbor and the United Workers. For the past few days we've sent out quotes from just some of the 147 surveys conducted to learn about the working conditions at the Inner Harbor. On April 18 workers and the community will bring these conditions to light, demand better and announce the first target of the Human Rights Zone campaign. The campaign will hold the worst employer at the Harbor to account, exposing conditions and poverty wages. We will also announce specific demands that have been adopted by a committee of Inner Harbor workers.

Your presence on Saturday April 18, 2009 matters to the workers at the Inner Harbor. It's important that the community stand with workers, to make it clear that worker injustice is unacceptable. Please join us and help spread the word.

See you next weekend!
